TLDR; We are keeping it as SimpleRockets 2.

It's been over a month since we asked you for feedback about renaming the game. We gathered almost 700 entries in the poll and got additional data with a couple of extra tests we ran.

Rebranding the game would take time (a new logo, tweaks to the website style, in-game menu, etc.) and could come with some technical issues (having to rename internal files, folders, etc.). Additionally, there are some risks when losing the gathered brand recognition, but that's something that can be overcome with time. Many benefits could come with rebranding, and the data we gathered (considering all biases) may seem to point in this direction, but they are not for sure, so there is a risk associated with it, and the risk/reward doesn't seem worth the hurdle.

It's also possible that we could get bad press online from those actively opposing the change, even if few, resulting in more damage than any benefits from the change of name. Additionally, some of you mentioned that you saw this change as dishonest or a money grab, I strongly disagree with both (and I could talk extensively about why), but we want to be as transparent as possible, and losing your trust is a concern.

For all these reasons, we have decided to stick around with SimpleRockets 2 as the name. Changes to the style of some in-game menus, tweaks to the website, and a new icon/logo aren't off the table, but it is something we have to discuss further internally. We will keep you informed. If you are interested in having a deeper look into the data we gathered check Data for nerds, it's "mucho texto" but I'm sure some of you will find it informative.

    @XAS on the left bar, hit the menu button (three horizontal bars). You should see buttons including Download Crafts and a square with an upward pointing arrow. Hit that.
    For the next part, make certain that you have signed in. If you have not, then Login/Register should appear next to the Account text box.
    After login, add any in game pictures you want (preferably relevant to the craft), but you must upload at least one. Name your craft and give it a description if you do choose, but I do believe the name obligatory.
    Selecting Public will ensure that anyone can see it whilst Unlisted will only allow those with a link and yourself through your profile.
    Tags are the last step. These are optional and can only be added through the website.
